things they use. households in such simple economies are almost completely self-sufficient. at the other end of the spectrum are highly complex economies in which people specialize in one particular job, like these shoe salesmen in morocco. specialization means people are no longer self-sufficient, but depend on each other. the shoe salesmen are dependent on the shoemakers, and the shoemakers are dependent on the tanners, and so on. this dependence on others makes society in general more complex, so specialization is a measure of society's overall complexity. archaeologists find evidence of specialization everywhere -- in the buildings and sculpture of ancient cities, and in crafts like elegant jade earrings, decorated pottery and even skulls with jade inlays in their teeth. these craft items were all made by specialists who worked at the ancient maya city of copan. between a.d. 400 and 800, this magnificent city flourished as one of the major centers of maya art and culture. copan was built in a broad mountain valley on the western border of honduras. at its height, the economic system

. the practice of water dowsing-- finding underground water using forked sticks-- has been going on for centuries. typically, the dowser grasps the fork of the stick and points the other end skyward. then, as he's walking along and happens to pass over a supply of underground water, the end of the stick, or divining rod, supposedly twists downward, showing where to dig the well. in reality, almost anywhere you popoint the stick, you'd eventually find water. although its depth varies considerably from place to place, water is present beneath the earth's surface almost everywhere, even under the driest deserts. most people tend to take groundwater for granted, but it's a tremendously valuable resource upon which most of us depend. over 1/2 of the u.s. population relies on it for its drinking-water supply. even more groundwater's used for irrigating agriculture, and its industrial use is growing every day. groundwater is valuable because it's plentiful and clean. there's about 50 times more water underground than in all the lakes and rivers on the earth's surface combined. in many area

no vainglory, no false monumentality. the use of materials takes pride of place-- the newest, including aluminum, combined with the oldest, including marble-- to produce a result startling in its modernity, given its date of 1904. but most of all, it was the sezessionist painters and their successors-- first klimt, then schiele and kokoschka-- who possessed the power most effectively to disrupt the conservative values of viennese society. in 1902, for the 14th sezessionist exhibition, gustav klimt, most important of the sezessionist painters, painted this friezelike work in homage to one of the great figures of the 19th century-- beethoven. the beethoven frieze is concerned with the highest ideals of art. it portrays the conflict between the human desire for happiness, love, and fulfillment, set against the fact of evil, corruption, death, and even the terrors of the unconscious. it portrays the achievement of pure joy through poetic and artistic creation. it culminates in a final embrace between man and woman, a kiss for the whole world. the modernity of the beethoven frieze

term that's still used today. so eventually the firn itself gets more compact, more recrystallized, and it becomes glacier ice. subject to extreme, instantaneous stress, ice shatters like glass. but if stress such as gravity is applied gradually over a long period of time, the ice bends. this process, called plastic deformation, explains how glaciers move. generally, ice must accumulate to a thickness of approximately 20 meters before movement starts. pulled by gravity, ice in a glacier typically shifts down slope a few millimeters per day. to study glacial flow, louis agassiz and his students built a hut on the ice itself. they observed that the center of the glacier moved most quickly, while friction slowed down movement along its sides. a similar phenomenon is observed in rivers and streams. scientists like agassiz also wanted to understand how glaciers flow internally. but it wasn't until early in the post-world war ii era that glaciologists were able to drill a hole through a swiss glacier. and this was a hole several hundred meters deep, maybe a couple of inches in diameter or sma
